ALARA Local Networks
Action Learning, Action Research Association Ltd (ALARA) has found that as people begin to network and organise they soon find themselves wanting to organise various events and activities to intensify their community of practice learning. The Research-in-Action Symposium in Melbourne, Victoria was a good example - as are the numerous events of the ALARA groups in Brisbane and other cities, and SPIRAL, where groups of members organise local conferences and workshops for themselves and other interested people.
ALARA's goal is to support conferences, workshops, publications, discussion evenings etc. on a regional or interest basis. Support can take the form of encouragement, advice, contacts, seed funds, mail outs and e-mail or website notification. The Association is a potential partner in collaborative action learning or action research or related projects.
This goal includes providing seed funding for Action Learning / Action Research events in Africa.
